Saltar de Alegria

More "coffee," 
less "your face."


Thanks, Michael!

He needs snorgles. If he had them, he may not be so grumpy.

Or maybe he would eat your face if you gave him snorgles.

Either way, I want to!

It's the abominable snow rabbit! Run for the hills!

Furbeast said...

Is it just me or does Saltar (excuse me, that would be Mr. De Alegria), look to be about the size of a Newfoundland in relation to the size of the room?

If so, a larger litterbox is in order. And bigger salad. And bunches of bananas. Basically whatever Saltar wants -- don't want him to thump, he could put a serious hole in the floor.

You are right, Furbeast. What does a bunn have to do to get someone to yell, "Big White Bunn!"

Ijon Tichy the Nth said...

... funny, that's exactly how I felt all day :-)

anonymous said...

ITtNth, you felt like a big white bunny all day?

Ijon Tichy the Nth said...

@anon ... hm, feeling like a big white bunny would have been a huge hop up. Alas, feeling not so worthy of such bliss, I simply appreciate Saltar's coffee remark.

Carla said...

His name means "happy jump"!!

anonymous said...

ITtNth, well I hope tomorrow will be a big white bunny day. We are all sure you are worthy.

speedyrabbit said...

hmmm coffee!then a snorgel...hehehe!

milktea said...

Saltar's full sentence could be... It's too early! *grumbles to self* I need more "coffee", less "your face". <3

Carla, are you this baby's hoomin momma? If so, that is a cute sweet name for a rabbit this beautiful. If he got lost in the snow, all you have to look for is a pile of white with an angry expression.
Please please snorgle attack his neck and ears for me!

Every kitchen needs one!

(Hey! I wonder if we could start a new Coffee House chain with SdA as the mascot/image/slogan? - only in Seattle!)

Michael Augustine said...

Hey there, Thanks for the comments about Tito! He's my boy! His name literally means "Jump for Joy" and he does when he's not busy disapproving.

Rabbits' Guy said...

He must be quite a sight to see when he is airborne!

anonymous said...

Yes, RG yes! MA he is quite the beauty.

anonymous said...

RG, I mean yes to your coffee shop idea, but indeed Jump for Joy must be something when aloft. Maybe the little extra kick in the coffee could be the the sound of his landing, sure to wake our patrons up. Then again, is Seattle in an earthquake zone? Excuse me for asking, but Seattle is an exotic place to me, and it's California that everyone always talks about. I'm just trying to figure out if our business plan has any flaws, you know, something that could come up down the road.

brandi b said...

Anonymous, very good questions.
Oklahoma City has a lot of coffee drinkers. I am sure we can accomidate any chain of coffee house that Seatle will not take care of.
(peed myself a little laughing out loud)

Rabbits' Guy said...

HELLO! Starbucks? Seattle?

Fine - take it all to Oklahoma City along with the Thunder (nee Sonics) and just leave us alone.

(Got a couple tickets for a game?)

brandi b said...

Oh, RG. We can take your basketball team and we can take your coffee houses. But you have the best thing of all...A Houseful Of Rabbits. I don't like basketball. I want Chico and Z.

SixBunnies said...

BWB AND Floppy ears! I'm in heaven!!!!! I would certainly jump for joy to get to snorgle him! Love him!

anonymous said...

RG get over it. Kevin Durant started at UT and left for the pros. Word is Coach Rick Barnes is still crying himself to sleep at night. Okay, there are probably a few thousands of UT basketball fans doing the same. I don't think the school has ever won a national championship in basketball. It's not pretty. You don't want to go there. Let go...

P.S. Vince Young, we love you FOREVER!

Tito here looks like my mood at work. And not just in the morning. Most of the day, in fact!

Only Tito, though grumpeh as me, looks about a googolplexplexplex times cuter than I ever could!

There are certain people at work that I am having to "train" not to come up to me and ask me to do stuff for them immediately. My work is supposed to be allocated solely by my 2 managers - I have asked for it to be this way. What I want is that all the work that my users need/want gets registered with my bosses, who assign the jobs a priority, add them to the queue with that priority, and when I finish a job, feed me the next one according to priority. That is how I have asked for it to be. That allows me to concentrate on doing the jobs I'm well-paid to do, and takes me out of the "Why did their job get done before MINE?!" loop.

Unfortunately there are certain stoopid users who STILL think they can saunter up to my desk and ask/demand me to do stuff without going through the queueing/triage process I have agreed with my bosses.

These users will keep getting brushed off with a grumpy "You got the email of xx/xx/2012, as everyone in the company did, and you will need to go through my manager like everyone else.". Eventually they will learn that they cannot jump the queue and they will get fed up with me brushing them off. And they will learn. (Not to like me.)

Tito's grumpeh expression is one that I do, and will continue to, find very useful when dealing with these stoopids! So thank-you, Tito!

janet2buns said...

@Fleetie: What you need is a gauntlet of disapprovers leading up to your work area. No hoomin, however stoopid, would survive to bother you. They probably wouldn't get past the first pair!

Fleetie said...

Janet : Yes! I could certainly use the services of Olaf, Sigismund, and Tito, and many other disapprovers, to sit at my desk sometimes, to "discourage" those who would interrupt my work.


Only, I'd get no work done, cos I'd be telling them how cute and adorable and gorgeous and snorgly they were... And then I'd get Disapproved Of myself!

anonymous said...

Fleetie, you are very, very cute! Smile and flutter your eye lashes at those queue crashes. Give them a little bit of the old bunny mouf and whatever you can in the way nose wiggles. One Binkie and they will be swooning to your orders. The secrets ot the Way of the Bunn have given you. Now use them.

Furbeast said...

Fleetie, follow Milo's lead and Just Say No.

If that doesn't work, take a cue from Snack, and threaten to poop in your coworkers "In" basket.
